Went to the range with a 20rnd box of the Underwood 10mm 200gr XTP. I also brought 20 rnds of Hornady 10mm 175gr FlexLock and 20 ronds of Sig Elite 10mm 180gr FMJ.

The 180 are nothing compared to the 200. Throwing 200 grains at 1250 fps makes them a hard hitter. I shot 'em with my G29 but I have the extended barrel which is 4.6".

The Hornady makes good SD ammo as it is only 1150 fps and easier to control.

Love that 10mm. :danceban:

I took delivery on Underwood's 10mm 220 grain hard cast load and their 180 grain XTP load. Haven't tried 'em over the chronograph yet but will soon.

I've had some experience with Buffalo Bore and their ammunition always checks out to be everything it's cracked up to be.

I was going to post a video but I couldn't decide between Donna Summer's "Hot Stuff" and Boston's "Smokin" so, well, carry on . . .

I went for the bald look once I started to look like David Crosby. It was quite a shock for people around me, apparently.

4.6'' barrel in 29 = good idea.

Winchester Silvertips are pretty cool in the 10mm also

Do we have a list of lousy 10 mm rounds, I mean like we have a list of shabby, less than stellar .357 rounds?

What?

edit: the only shabby things I can find about the .357 are speculation concerning over penetration and excessive recoil.

Should be easy enough to compile. Lousy how? Weak loads?

Reloading I've gotten 180 grain bullets to go 1300 fps. Havent tried any 200 grain bullets yet, but it would be interesting to see if I could get them to 1250.

That's easy. Assume that all 10mm loads are watered down until proven otherwise. If you want a reference for loads that are not watered down, look at Underwood, Double Tap, or Buffalo Bore.
That's a safe assumption. Because of that I got a 40sw barrel for my 10mm so I can buy 40sw at 40sw prices not at 10mm prices.

The Hornady 10mm 175 FlexLock is medium power, more powerful than 40sw still and a good SD round. This is the weakest round I found that's worth the 10mm price.
